Carter’s POV


When I woke up I looked to my side to see no Harry. I got up and walked over to the door of the bathroom. I didn’t hear the shower or sink running, so I knocked on the door. No response. I walked in and saw that it was empty. I walked back out to see if he had left me a note or anything. I heard the sound of something vibrating, then looked at my backpack. I pulled out my phone to see a text for Harry. I opened the text and read it. “Down in the lobby having breakfast. Come down if you are up.” I walked into the bathroom and brushed my hair and teeth before walking out. I deiced that I would just wear my pjs which was just sweat pants and a Nike shirt. I walked to the elevator waited for it to come. When it did I walked in and hit the button with the big ‘L’ on it. I send Luke a text letting him know that we had gotten here last night. I waited for it to open the door at the floor that I wanted before getting off. I found my way to the lobby’s breakfast area. When I got there I looked around for Harry. I spotted him and started making my way up to him. He didn’t see me coming since his back was to me. “Hi.” I said in a small voice. A course of Hi’s, Hello’s, and Good morning’s, were said back to me. I took a seat in-between Harry and Niall. “So what is the plan today?” I asked. “We have rehearsals, and we need to meet up with our opening act.” Liam said, answering my question. I nodded my head then looked at Louis. “Is there a reason you’re just staring at me?” I asked him. “Nope, I’m just staring at you.” He said, shrugging like it was nothing. “I think Im just going to get some food.” I said while standing up. “Oooh. I’ll come!” Niall said standing up as well. I nodded my head and we walked over to the buffet. “How did you sleep?” I asked him trying to make a little small talk. “Great, dreamt about Nando’s. How did you sleep?” “Okay, I kept dreaming about leaving Luke…” I said, choking on my words. ‘No Carter you are not going to cry. Not again!’ I thought. “I’m sorry, But I’m sure you’ll see him again soon.” He tried to cheer me up. I nodded my head. After we got our food we walked back to the table and sat down. I ate all the food that was on my plate which consisted of, one egg, two bacon strips, and a yogurt. “Are you sure you don’t want more to eat? You have, like, nothing!” Niall said while looking at me. “I’m sure. I don’t really eat that much in the morning.” I said back to him, looking at my plate. When Niall finished his third plate of food, we all went back up to our rooms so we could go to the boys rehearsals. I pulled on a pair of Nike shorts and left the shirt that I slept in on. We soon were soon out the door and in the lobby meeting up with the boys again. “Okay we have everyone so let's go.” Paul said.


*Skipping rehearsals*


We went back to the hotel and went up to our rooms. “What are we doing?” I asked Harry. “We are going to meet our opening act down at the pool. So we need to get changed.” I nodded my head and grabbed my black and white striped swimsuit from my duffle, along with my ombrè sweater and little blue denim shorts. I walked into the bathroom and got changed into my bikini swimsuit.

I looked at myself in the mirror and liked what I saw. It had a little blue in it and showed off my abs. Then threw on the sweater and shorts. I walked out of the bathroom to see Harry sitting on the bed with his swim trunks on and a white t-shirt on. I grabbed my phone from the bed and walked over to where I was standing in front of Harry. He looked up from his phone and smiled at me. “Ready?” He asked me. “Yeah, are you ready?” I asked him. He nodded his he in response and stood up so I was no longer taller then him. He grabbed, a room key, his wallet, and his phone and we walked out. When Harry and I got to the elevator, all the other boys where standing there waiting. “You didn't have to wait.” I said to them. They all just shrugged their shoulders. The elevator dinged and we all got on.


We walked out onto the pool deck and I saw a few guys messing around. “Look who showed up!” I heard an Australian accent say. I was standing behind everyone so I don’t think they have seen me yet. I stood by Harry and asked him, “Are they your guys opening act?” “Yeah, here I’ll introduce you.” He said while grabbing my hand. “Hey who's the little one?” The one with hair that was dyed asked. “Mates this is Carter, Carter this is Luke, Calum, Michael, and Ashton.” He said while pointing to each of the boys. I waved to them and I took a mental note on who was who so I wouldn’t forget, hopefully. "So this is your step-sister you were telling us about?" The one called Ashton said. "Yeah." Harry said in response. They all waved at me and smiled. After we were fully introduced, they turned around and walked towards the edge of the pool. "Who are they?" I whispered curiously Harry. "5 Seconds of Summer, but you can call them 5SOS." He said. I just nodded my head. “Who’s ready to go swimming!” Louis yelled while doing a cannonball into the water. All the guys took off their shirts and jumped in the water. “Come on Carter! Get your butt in the water!” Niall yelled to me. I just Looked at him for a minute then started taking off my shorts. I then felt cold water embrace my back. “HEY!” I yelled. I turned around and saw Louis laughing like crazy. I just glared at him, then took off my sweater. “You’re going to get it Tomlinson!” I said while jumping in the water. I started making my way over to Louis, when Harry wrapped his arms around my stomach. He then picked me up and spun me around making me laugh. “ Gosh, you’ve got some muscle!” Harry said making me laugh even harder. “What can I say, I’m an athlete!” I said to him. “LOUIS!” Harry yelled to him. He then threw me to Louis. “ZAYN!” Louis yelled while throwing me. Zayn threw me to Liam, who passed me back to Louis.  “TIME TO PLAY THROW THE CAT!” Louis yelled. I was soon thrown from person to person.
